January signing Bruno Fernandes was second with 5.88, in third was Anthony Martial with 5.65 while skipper Harry Maguire who scored the winner got 5.64.

Ighalo’s goal against Norwich was his third in two Emirates FA Cup appearances for United this season.

He has scored five goals, provided one assist in 11 appearances in all competitions.

The on loan striker was quickest to react to a Luke Shaw’s deflected cross, stabbing the ball past Norwich keeper Tim Krul.

Norwich equalised thanks to Todd Cantwell whose long range strike beat Sergio Romero in goal for United.

In the 88th minute Norwich were reduced to 10 men after Timm Klose was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Ighalo.

And with two minutes remaining in the second half of extra-time Maguire slotted home the winner, to send United into a record 30th semi-final appearance.

The Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals will continue on Sunday with three fixtures scheduled to take place.

The first game will see Sheffield United welcome Arsenal and Leicester City vs Chelsea will play next at the King Power stadium.

And the final last eight fixture is between Newcastle United and holders Manchester City at St. James’ Park.

The semi-final fixtures will hold inside the Wembley stadium.
